  • The U.S. IT jobs market is one of the hottest in the nation's economy, and by the look of things, that's not changing anytime soon. A new study from digital marketing firm Mondo shows that not only are IT jobs in high demand, but companies are increasingly willing to pay whatever it takes to find the right employee for the job. And with IT security worries on the rise, demand is rising for information security officers who will keep an eye on corporate networks and put in the defenses necessary to prevent data breaches. More than anything, the Mondo jobs report shows that the IT space is evolving rapidly and companies are adapting by hiring people with varied skill sets to fill mission-critical positions. Best of all, people with the right IT skills will find that companies are willing to bid high for their services. This slide show covers some of the key findings in the Mondo report and details the jobs that have been most in demand so far this year. Read on to learn more about the current state of the IT jobs market.

  • IT support teams don't only deal with IT and business services, they also manage all the physical and virtual asset components of a system. Because those assets are the building blocks of an organization's IT infrastructure, the idea of using some sort of IT asset management (ITAM) should be a consideration—especially as an IT system evolves. Many organizations have no knowledge about their IT asset infrastructure, while others have limited visibility of their planned and actual asset inventory. Streamlined asset management can bring down IT costs. ITAM plays a role in helping an organization define and control its IT infrastructure by maintaining data about the historical and current state of all assets. ITAM also helps an organization stay compliant with its software licenses, prepare for audits and reduce legal as well as security risks. In this slide show, edited by eWEEK and featuring professional industry information from Prithiv RajKumar, marketing analyst at ManageEngine, we provide tips that will guide you in implementing an effective asset management process.

  • As data volumes and larger workloads continue to increase, virtualization has become the standard environment and cloud computing is a go-to approach for many functions. As the result of all these additional IT layers, the complexity and scale of IT application infrastructures necessarily rise. There are more powerful servers, more capacious storage arrays, faster networking equipment, bigger pipes for connecting it all and a lot more apps running outside the firewall serving the enterprise. IT needs to plan for and manage these changes carefully and provide accessibility, flexibility and privacy for their employees and customers without adding significant dollars to their IT budgets. Thus, clear visibility into the entire environment is a must. To effectively take stock of data center infrastructure and the performance impact of disparate components, companies should consider the steps outlined in this slide show, put together using eWEEK reporting and professional expertise from John Gentry, vice president of marketing and alliances at Virtual Instruments.
